Top Essay Writing has been around for several years now. The company has a track record as a writing service for customers throughout the English-speaking world. Our review of this company has taken into account several factors and is based on a lot of research that you do not now have to do. You can read about all that we have found right here.


Top Essay Writing focuses almost exclusively on providing writing service to students at all grade levels, through graduate-level programs. Among its products and services are the following:

  • Essay writing of all types
  • Paper writing of all kinds – term paper, research paper, other college papers
  • Book reviews
  • Case studies
  • Lab reports
  • Analyses and Critiques

  • Editing and proofreading
  • Admissions and scholarship essays
  • Theses and dissertations
  • Speeches and presentations
  • Coursework assignments
  • Other academic writing

The company states it only produces custom writing, based upon the specific details provided by its customers on its order form. Each order is assigned to “certified” writer who has expertise in the specified subject field.

Prices and Discounts

Pricing is right at the average level for other companies that offer academic writing. These prices begin at $12.99/page for a high school custom essay and graduate up to $41.99/page for academic papers at the PhD level. Like other custom writing services, prices depend upon grade level, length, and the customer deadline.

At the time of this writing, Top Essay Writing is offering a 13% discount to all new customers. It also sports a loyalty discount program – 5% – 15% dependent on the cumulative number of orders.

Offers and Extra Services

The standard free services are offered – unlimited revisions, title page and bibliography, plagiarism check, and formatting.

There is a number of fee-based services too. The key ones are: choosing higher level writers, getting extra editing, and more personalized customer support from an individual support team member.

Paper Quality

We have looked for and solicited copies of paper writing that customers have received from Top Essay Writing as well as feedback and comments from these customers. We did get a few college papers which appeared to be well-structured and that used current and appropriate resources. There were some differences in overall quality which means that some writers are probably more expert than others.

Writer Proficiency

The company does not provide a lot of information about its writers. It does state that it assigns orders for academic papers to writers, based upon the customer academic level and the subject area. It states that its writers are “certified,” though this is not defined. We would suggest that the company provide the process by which it recruits, screens, “tests,” its writers.

We did review several samples on the website, along with a couple of blog posts. We have seen these samples on other writing websites which suggests that there is a parent company that owns more than one writing service. Still, they are relatively well-written, except for the lack of a solid thesis statement on one of them.

The blog posts are interesting and informative, though it looks like the blog has not been updated with new articles in quite a while. Given the new circumstances students are now facing due to the pandemic, there are a wealth of topics that could be useful.

Customer Service

We did contact the customer support on three occasions – by phone, live chat, and email. We spoke with a different support team member on the phone and through live chat. They did give us friendly responses and pretty solid answers to our questions. We would not recommend email communication because it is a bit slow.


Top Essay Writing has very clear policies that outline all the rights and responsibilities that customers have when doing business with the company. Within those policies are certain guarantees – revisions, full privacy, secure payment methods and money-back guarantee under certain conditions.

Customer Reviews

In addition to the research we did to find customers and get their feedback, we also checked customer reviews on site Jabber and Trust Pilot. Those are the two respected consumer review websites. Here is what we found:

  • Reviews on Site Jabber were divided about half and half. Some customers raved about both products and services; others were quite dissatisfied. Again, it seems to depend on the writer who is assigned to the order.
  • Reviews on Trust Pilot are overwhelmingly positive. Customers state high satisfaction levels with both product quality and customer service.

Pros and Cons

We offer the following pros and cons for you to think about as you consider using this essay writing service:


  • There is communication between customer and writer throughout the process
  • Many customers are highly satisfied with the research paper, term paper and custom essay writing products
  • Policies and guarantees are solid
  • Customer service open 24/7 and responsive


  • Paying for a higher level writer may be necessary for complex pieces
  • Blog should be updated
  • Need more information on writers

Our Verdict

In general, we like Top Essay Writing. It is genuinely in the business of helping students become successful. Some customers have had issues with quality and revisions. We suggest that you place your orders in plenty of time in case you want revisions before they must be submitted. We can recommend this service but do suggest that you pay for a higher level writer.
